Hey Gang....Yep!!!!!! It's that time of year again to think about a River Ruckus! Big smile Was gonna wait until after inauguration day to start this thread but Censored it! I've had it up to my 3 feet over my head with all this Corona Crap and really miss this event along with my CCFan Ski Buds so I'm announcing it NOW! Thoughts on a March weekend all depending if DeSantis or the Prez shuts the country down. It's time to return to normal. Who's in?? Same routine as normal and same location. Lets make it happen since we didn't do it in 2020.

And its 30+ years with 5 weeks vacation, 10 holidays and 7 paid Personal days. Life is good!

If I can sneak out of NC without Governor Cooper seeing me leave past check point checky.  I may have to leave the state in the cover of darkness with my truck lights off while driving on the back roads at a high rate of speed, just like the moonshiners did back in the day. While pulling a boat.

Mike, I think we're still a Go on this. I haven't reached out to Parramores  to see what is going on. With no Sunnyland Festival going on we can do any weekend in March that all can attend after were back on DST. I'll try to call them today and look to see how many cabins are available on several weekends. I would imagine they'll give us the usual CCFan discount.

Okay so I haven't talked with the gals from Parramores but looking at the calendar here's what we got.....
March 14 is when DST begins..
March 18 - 8 Cabins available
March 25 - 8 Cabins
April 1 (Easter weekend) 11 - Cabins 
April 8 - 11 Cabins

 What weekend works best for everyone? Any weekend before DST isn't gonna work as there is no availabilty at all... There is no Sunnyland boat festival this year so we aren't handcuffed by that date. An April date would allow more attendees and the weather & water temps would be warmer. Might also mean that some of of snowbound Fans might be able to attend and drag a boat on clear roads. My vote is April 8th but it's what y'all wanna do as this is about "The Collective"!

Based on the school's Spring Break schedule, I would prefer the March 18th weekend so we wouldn't have to pull the kids out of school, and we also have an interested teacher who wouldn't be able to do the April date. Just my preference but will try and make anything work to attend this year!!


Posted By: Morfoot
Date Posted: January-07-2021 at 9:02am
Okay Gang the SJRR 2021 date is SET!!!!!!! Mark your calendar for April 8- 11 and make plans for a RUCKUS! I know it's later than normal but the deciding factor was cabin availability. I have already booked my cabin so at the time of this post there are 10 left.  Anything earlier and that # was reduced to 6.  With the amount of attendees who said they wanted to come, they might have to find accommodations elsewhere or tent/rv camp which kinda defeats the whole purpose anyway. Parramores  working with us again and will give CCFans a 10% discount on your rate but YOU HAVE TO CALL, when you book and identify yourself as a CCFan in order to get it. Doing so Online won't work. Due to Covid restrictions the Rec Hall (as of now) won't be available for Sat night cookout BUT the pavillion will be available or some other area of the campground for the traditional River Ruckus Cookout on Saturday.  As Mike mentioned the Sunnyland Show is cancelled but we'll still do the Ocklawaha River Run on Friday as it's a Ruckus favorite and do lunch at one of the many establishments lakeside in Mt. Dora. Should be fun as always and the weather will be a bit warmer so plan on dragging your Correct Craft down to Astor for some Social Distancing 32'ft off or 100'ft off if your Footing on the beautiful St. Johns River.

See Y'all Soon!!

 We all KNOW the rules around here so the above statement ISN'T exactly True.... From the archives of the 2011 River Ruckus here is Photo evidence of Foot attempting to Foot. Pulling a page from Brother Deens Book of Barefootin' one must ride on your backside for 1/2 mile before placing feet in the water. This was behind JoeinNY's SN.

Date Posted: January-14-2021 at 6:07am
 Cabins are going pretty fast Y'all... At the time of this post there are 5 cabins left. Plenty of RV slots available if that is your thing. I know of 2 other CCFans that are planning on attending with their RV's but not set in stone yet. Nice to see we have some new attendees joining us for their First Ruckus. So welcome Ike & Debbie.  Just a reminder to folks that the Ocklawalaha River run starts EARLY on Friday morning as we have to trailer to Moss Bluff Dam, launch the CC Armada and head down river. Good news for everyone. The Burrel Lock does not close for lunch anymore so we don't have to be there before noon. We still wanna get there early as it is a Long day of boating and even though there isn't a boat show this year to spend a couple hours I imagine we'll get plenty of water sports time on the two lakes we cruise on.

 Don't delay in booking a cabin as you don't wanna end up staying somewhere else. Looking forward to this event to say the least. It'll be great to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones. The River Ruckus will be here soon!

Great group so far, some heavy hitters and frequent Ruckusers'!  Tongue Keep the list going y'all and get off the fence if you're trying to decide. First April Ruckus so the water will be warmer.....the Glenn springs will feel great on a HOT Fla day....the beer will be colder and the fellowship will be second to none! Get moving before the cabins get gone. This is gonna be a great time with some great CCFans playing with boats!

 Not a whole lot to report from the organizing end. Only 2 cabins left at this post. Would like to see someone pipe up and say they got em. April will be here soon so better start getting boats & trailers ready, Bumpers, anchors organized and coolers cleaned up. Don't wait till the last second. Start thinking about what you're bringing for the Ruckus cookout Saturday night. Grill will be on hand to cookup whatever is brought to feed everyone.

Unsure at present, but I might have to alter my plans a bit.  A week ago yesterday I crashed a flat kite and busted 3 ribs and a fibula bone below the knee; also bruised a left ankle until the whole thing is black and the size of a small cantaloupe.  The docs are saying all will heal in about 2 months, but I hope to be able to hurry it along.  Phyllis and I are still coming, but I probably won't bring the '61.  Ribs are improving, but I live in fear of coughing or sneezing.

Wow, flying a flat kite.  That's bold.  Very cool and, like myself, very old school, but Wow.  Not the safest things in the world, but I appreciate your getting out there and showing the youngsters how things were done in the good old days.  I've never had a crash like that (never flown a kite) but I just smacked my ribs a little bit last spring while swervin' and even with that I know what you are saying about dreading the unexpected cough and sneeze.  Just when you think you are getting better you sneeze and it feels like you've been shot in the chest with a .45 at close range.  Heal quickly Art.

Pete, I'll have to good-naturedly defend defend the reputation of the flat kite. 
There have been some nasty injuries; the best-known might be Ken Tibado, one of the pioneer flat kite enthusiasts.  He was flying behind a car on an old airstrip in Sebring, FL with his wife driving the car.  He crashed, and his wife didn't notice it for several (or more) seconds.  He was pretty badly beaten up and lots of road rash, but continued to fly following recovery.  He was the main kite flyer for Cypress Gardens in the 1950s, and had a business in Lake Wales, FL building and selling flat kites..  I copied a Tibado that was owned by Rob Shirley when I built mine in 1967. 
We know of one death as a result of a crash; at a ski site in Minnesota when Kathy Chapman crashed and unfortunately landed on the tow pylon of a ski boat that was parked on the beach. 
Contrast that with Delta wings, or hang gliders as they are sometimes known, which have taken the lives of nine (9) or more people who I personally knew, and there have been dozens of others who I cannot name.

Ouch Art!  Hope your doing better.

Check out this guy- he has managed to incorporate old school tubing with a kite ! A true sign of a Champion. Hold my beer and watch this! Wisconsin's state motto.

WoW! You ARE the Man Art!!!!!! Not that you didn't have respect around here in the first place I'd say after a stunt like that; you've tripled the Art Cozier respect meter. Can't wait to hear this story in person! Take care my friend and heal quickly. See you in a month!

Hope you are healing quickly Art! Another tip on healing ribs, do not laugh!!

Smith Family has been laying low and out of the loop! We missed booking a cabin but will continue to monitor and likely, at least, join on day trips. All the kids are busy but the boys, who are a little upset for my mismanagement of booking!!

Art, Get well soon.  Thankfully, the crash was not worse.  I didn't know people still flew kites.  I saw a show at Cypress Gardens in 1968 and the finally was the kite going up maybe 300' and releasing from the boat and circling down and landing in front of the bleachers.  Really impressive.  I had neighbors that had one in the 1970's and drove for them once in their Resorter 16.  Pretty intense with the observer telling the driver to go faster, go slower, and a panicky faster faster faster...

Well. I would not believe it if I did not see that picture. I can not believe Art was riding/flying that. Those are old school, I’m guessing NEW version is the parasail
Unbelievable
(Thanks for pic Pete)

Thanks for the encouragement.  Every day there is something that hurts less.  The kite that you saw at the Gardens was a different breed from what I have.  Mine is known as a "Flat Kite" and is simply a frame with a flat sail attached.  As opposed to a Delta Kite, or "Hang Glider" if you prefer, the flat kit never detaches from the boat except in the event of a mishap or an intentional landing.

A flat kite behaves in the air in much the same way that a slalom ski behaves on the water.  Shift weight left and right, the kite follows to some extent.  Altitude is controlled by air speed and the length of the towline.  In the heydays of flat kites, there were tournaments that included slalom and tricks,  Slalom was run similar to slalom skiiing, except that instead of buoys the course consisted of water geysers connected to pumps.  Tricks consisted of moves such as flipping one's body over the trapeeze bar, turning the body upside down and steering with the feet, and many more.  There are even unconfirmed stories about one of the pioneers in flat kite flying and his wife getting r-e-a-l-l-y chummy when flying double. 

Someday, if I can get someone to show me how to post photos on this site, I will do so.  I'm as close to being computer llliterate as one can be. 

It had crossed my mind to bring my kite to the River Ruckus, but it is a lot of trouble and prep, and of course the injuries will probably not be completely cured by then.  Phyllis has had experience driving for me back in the 1960s - '70s, but I think she will refuse to drive me ever again.  I would have to bring the guy whose kite I was flying when I crashed.

Now, that's a unique way to ride a sail.  Am I seeing the photo correctly; are his feet in the harness?  Perhaps too hard a hit coming off the ground?

If you look at the spectators, they're watching someone narrowly escape serious injury or death.  At take off, the flyer fell to his butt, skated across the lawn towards a wall and lifted off just before the wall.  He was upside down when he lifted off, but got right side up and gave a thumbs up and had a good flight.  Fortunately, the driver knew what he was doing and did not panic and chop the throttle.

Good morning unfortunately Big Wave Dave and the crew will not be able to make the river ruckus. My friend Clay Reedy has gotten his new schedule at the hospital and hast to work that weekend. With Covid there is no exceptions. We were booked in the squirrel cabin and I canceled it this morning. We were all looking forward to the trip and seeing all your great people.The best part of it was Clay and I are bringing a friend that we ski with (unfortunately a Malibu boat owner) to show him how great Nautique people are. Hopefully things will get back to normal this summer and we can plan a huge river ruckus next year Dave

Dave, why not let Clay repair hearts and you drive up for an afternoon or a day.  I will probably not be bringing the '61 SN as I will probably still be on the mend from a flat kite crash and won't be doing much boat-riding unless my ribs heal faster than expected.  Doc says 6 weeks.  Phyllis plans on us just hanging around the camp grounds and visit with people as they come and go. We are staying over Friday and Saturday nights. Broke at least 3 ribs and a fibula bone in the lower leg.  I'm not bandaged up or cast, but moving slowly.  It happened a week ago Saturday at Lake Silver, WH.

Morfoot - Spec Hole - Desert

mmfarmer1 - Ms Auds - BBQ Ribs

Flat Kite Art AKA Crash Cozier & Phyllis - ???- Utensils

Jbear - Bear Den

rebel skier - Eagles Nest

chessie - RV

skibum - Bluegill

Nautique John - Deer Hunter

ReidP - RV

LesterT - local

Correct!  Art (with rapidly healing injuries from kite crash) and Phyllis already have:

Decent quality paper/plastic plates (not the floppy ones)
Solo cups
Plastic "silverware"
Paper towels (A.K.A. Napkins)

What else might we need??  (Serving utensils like tongs, serving spoons???)

We used to provide a keg for all to enjoy but it usually went to waste. Maybe half of it was left behind. Most of the weekend is spent on a river or in the springs so there just wasn't enough time at Parts more a to consume it.

 I guess only a dozen of of us are eating Mike as there seem to be a bunch of crickets in here. Anything in particular that you or Marsha want for desert? How about you Richard?

No preference here on desert unless the GA peaches are super ripe that time of year.  Always love a peach cobbler.  But it may be too early.  

Would y'all prefer I bring burgers to throw on with Mike's ribs vs chicken wings? 

I am picking up an HO Hovercraft prior to the trip.  I spent too much of last season nursing back pain and think it could be a fun way to get my slalom rehab well underway.

Okay Gang.... we are quickly approaching the Ruckus as Mike mentioned. Just a reminder to those who are regulars and for the few newcomers we have.......

DON'T FORGET!!!!!

ANCHOR
ROPES for Bow AND Stern
BOAT FENDERS... this is essential for rafting up in the Silver Glen and for docking in Taverres for lunch Fri.
RED SOLO CUPS... Alcohol is prohibited in the Silver Glen and Barney always shows up, but everyone knows that "drinking water' tastes better out of a RSC! Wink
SUNSCREEN and SNACKS... It's usually an all day party at the Glen on Sat so be prepared to bake in the HOT Fla Sun all day.

 For those not knowing what to bring for Saturday Nights cookout just bring something that goes well with ribs and chicken. Chips are always good, Every likes Desserts so bring something other than coconut and carrot cake which is what I usually bring as its usually requested. King Hawaiian Dinner rolls maybe??
